:NOTE:I know that Maryland are not part of the southeast forum but there are a possibility of me living near the northern border of Va and the Va members here may be able to give me some answers too :NOTE:
A friend (in Va) last week offerred to pay for my flight tickets to visit him and to check out Gallaudet (which is a deaf university in Washington DC and in case you didn't know, I'm deaf) in April. I've accepted because I haven't seen my family in a long while and I'm actually curious to see if they (gallaudet) have any culinary major or at least have a program for the deaf to use other nearby university for the culinary art major.
Here the thing, i have to "reside" in Colorado Springs, CO until August cause my friend here really need a roommate and if I leave her, she would basically be homeless in a hurry. At least by August, she can find another roommate and a better apartment when her lease have ended.
So this April trip is just a visit for now, I'm not sure how long the visit will be but I hope that it will be about 3 weeks long. More than enough time to visit my family, friend, and Gallaudet.
So is there anything cycling related going on in April that you all think i should check out? Are there good routes/roads around Washinton DC and surrounding areas? Is there any particular cycling club that might do me good to check out during the trip? Is there anything at all I should know about Washington D.C. (Cycling-related or not)?
What is the housing situation for students there like if anybody knows? Is there any particular everyday costs that I should watch out for there?
If everything checks out ok for me, I may be moving there around this august.
I'm not really sure what else to check out. This is my first time really trying to look into and research my next move and since I'm only 22, i don't have alot of experience moving around on my own (my parent was always the one in charge of the moves since my family was a military one)
P.S. Since I'm not really sure which one to post in, I will be posting in both the northeast and southeast forum since I know that many students and commuting employee could be from the northern border of Va.
